    I can't be alone on this, can I?

    I think this is the right forum for my question considering we are responsible for our pets safety😊 Is there possibly a carrier out there that will fit my 02 1800s, accommodate my 55lb. female bulldog comfortably, and mount behind my drivers backrest? 2 pics to follow, 1 is the (currently) bare bones and the other is travel ready (95 percent of the time) passenger sissybar with kuryaken luggage behind and oem saddle bags. I know there isn't much room between the 2 backrests but where else can it go? She's to big for the gas tank.
    Idealy a carrier could be added to the loaded bike so I can carry my traveling gear/clothes but if I need to leave something off to gain the carrier, that will be better than leaving my dog behind.
    I hope there is a way to make this work, safely
    Thanks for any help
    Safe travels

    No joke I've seen a Harley around here with plywood and a laundry basket bolted down in place of trunk.
    Looked like a happy dog with googles on.

    There was someone on here a year or two ago that modified a trailer to fit a pet cage. They ride around with their dog in tow behind them. I can't find the thread or I'd link it.

    there was a television show... of a guy that made a trailer.. for his large dog... open top..

    some type of strong fence for sides.... with exit gate at rear..

    deviced's mounted onto gas tank with carpet and leash... cat or small dog.

    platforms for second seat / trunk mount.. for box/crate for larger animals....

    or go to any LARGE motorcycle gatherings... you will see many types...

    almost Common... for many years..

    The only thing I've seen that works well is a sidecar. I'm sure something can be rigged on the luggage rack but 55lbs might be iffy

    These guys made their own.. Do you self a favor, skip the first 5 minutes of the video..

    PS. I would have used plywood on the floor inside and out..
